Hi these were taken with a usb microscope I think its plat material I need Id please
magnifications are 10x 60x and 200x
Pic1 looks a bit like a fossil centapede, but the other ones look like modern grass roots.
Great find and magnification!
I also think it is plant material and I think the round fossils could be seeds.
This has been identified as plant material . Thanks Tabfish and Dan for your replies
Thinking out loud...
I'm not entirely convinced the discoid object is botanical in origin.
I can't help seeing in it a likeness to Spondylus bivalves, which come in a wide range of spikiness. Here are a couple of examples:
- S. linguafelis - http://images.marinespecies.org/resized/68739_spondylus-linguafelis.jpg
I know your specimen is small, so maybe it is a seed, though not one I recognize.
Well done with the close-ups.
For future reference, it would be more useful to include a scale than to tell us the magnification (since the actual magnification as perceived by folks such as us depends on the size of their screen and other factors). Or simply measure the object and include its dimensions in your description.
Thanks Mike I understand about the measurements you need the actual size as well as the magnification
this is only 2mm at the most in width . Could be a very small Spondylus bivalve hadnt thought of this as a possibility but thanks for the heads up great
With images like that I will have to get a usb microscope!
Hi Tabfish its amazing what you can do with a fairly inexpensive USB microscope the model of mine is a Traveller biught at Aldis for less than £ 70.00 comes with software for taking photo stills and videos direct to computer and small microscope kit test tubes slides etc
Thanks ckmerlin for pointing me in the right direction.
